try setting the pcm and ogain to about 80 or so. with my sblive, if i turn 
the pcm up all the way, it gets distorted. about 80% is fine. never used ogain
myself but maybe it applies for you? oh and the master volume doesn't distort
for me so i let it slide from 0 to 100 depending on what i'm listening to ;)
